Why is Mancini reportedly on the verge of Galatasaray exit?

The former Manchester City manager is at the centre of a disagreement concerning January transfers and there are fears he may depart the Turkish club

Roberto Mancini could be set for a sensational exit from Galatasaray despite only taking charge of the Turkish outfit in September, according to reports.

The fallout between Mancini and club officials has stemmed from a rumoured disagreement over the club's transfer plans in January and while his contract runs until June 2016, his future is now well and truly up in the air.

Mancini has largely impressed during his time with the Turkish giants so far, having knocked out Juventus to reach the last 16 of the Champions League and his side currently lie second in the domestic standings.

But after requesting funds to reinforce the team, as they look to compete on multiple fronts, has seemingly not gone down well with Gala bigwigs and, in turn, Mancini is understandably frustrated at his employers' stance.

There are now fears that Mancini, who has been touted as a potential candidate to replace Tim Sherwood at Spurs should the Englishman fail to impress, could now seek an exit from the club after just four months in the Gala hotseat.
